elizabeth banks in talks for the hunger games

Elizabeth Banks (THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN) is in talks to star as Effie Trinket in Lionsgate's THE HUNGER GAMES.

Banks would star opposite Jennifer Lawrence (WINTER'S BONE), Josh Hutcherson (THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT), Liam Hemsworth (THE LAST SONG), Amandla Stenberg (WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO), and Dayo Okeniyi (EYES TO SEE).

THE HUNGER GAMES, an adaptation of Suzanne Collins' sci-fi novel, centers on a young girl (Lawrence) who joins a survival contest in order to save her community in a dystopian future. The character of Effie serves as an "escort" to Lawrence and Hutcherson's characters, a sort of guide to the Hunger Games and their rules and ways.

Gary Ross will direct the film, which is expected to hit multiplexes nationwide on March 23, 2012.
